When you think about the ‘Dog Days of Summer’ in Waukegan, chances are that you could find yourself daydreaming about a perfectly chilled home to arrive to when you walk in the door from work. Of course for some homeowners, the sad reality is that they arrive home with a busted air conditioner and now require an AC repair. So what can you do to get through those seemingly unending, scorching days without maxing out your air conditioner?
- Lessen your use of appliances that make heat. Of course you can’t completely discontinue the use of your oven and stove, but being mindful of their uses can help more than you would think. Avoid using heat-generating appliances during the hottest part of the day as your air conditioner will most likely already be working hard to keep your home cool.
- Keep your blinds and shades closed. Windows can let in a great deal of heat if your window coverings aren’t utilized, and considering the temperatures in Waukegan, your home can warm up pretty quickly. If you’re heading to work or are just out of the house for a few hours, make sure to keep your blinds and shades closed to keep any excess heat out.
- Utilize fans. While fans don’t actually alter air temperature, they do circulate air and help ensure your home is feeling comfortable. However, remember to turn fans off in rooms that aren’t being used since they don’t reduce the air temperature.
